The Girl From Ipanema
(Garota De Ipanema)

Music by Antonio Carlos Jobim
Original words by Vinicius de Moraes
English Translation by Norman Gimbel

Bossa Nova in half-time (4/4 -> 2/4)
Key: F major

[Fmaj7] Tall and tan and young and lovely, the girl
[G7] from Ipanema goes walking, and when
[Gm7] she passes, each one [Gb7] she passes goes
[Fmaj7] A-A-H...           [Gb9]

[Fmaj7] When she walks she's like a samba that
[G7] swings so cool and sways so gentle, that when
[Gm7] she passes, each one [Gb7] she passes goes
[Fmaj7] A-A-H...           [Fmaj7]

[Gbmaj7] Oh, but I watch her so
[Cb9] saddly.
[F#m7] How can I tell her I
[D9] love her?
[Gm7] Yes, I would give my heart
[Eb9] gladdly.      But each
[Am7] day when she walks to the [D7-9] sea, she
[Gm7] looks straight ahead not at [C7-9] me.

[Fmaj7] Tall and tan and young and lovely the girl
[G7] from Ipanema goes walking, and when
[Gm7] she passes I smile, [Gb7] but she doesn't
[Fmaj7] see.              [Gb7]                     : first time through.

Repeat from beginning.

...[Fmaj7] see.           [Gb7] She just doesn't    : second time through.
   [Fmaj7] see.           [Gb7] No, she doesn't
   [Fmaj7] see.   [Gb7]   [Fmaj7]
